Since there’s no baseball being played, there’s no opportunity for the Houston Astros to get what’s coming to them.
Of course, the Astros were the center of a highly publicized investigation this past winter when allegations of illegal sign stealing came into the public eye. The allegations were confirmed and they were found to be cheating since at least some point during the 2017 season. Up to and including their World Series win over the Dodgers.
The punishment levied upon was deemed by the court of public opinion as weak (rightfully so) and it looked like Houston players were headed for a season of trauma, vengeance, and agony.
Then the pandemic happened.
However, you can always count on angry people to step up and passive-aggressively make sure that people don’t forget their crimes while fastballs to the ribs wait in the wings.
The latest dig against the Astros comes from an east coast craft brewery called Departed Soles. The Jersey City based brewer recently released a new signature IPA called “Trash Can Banger” which was an immediate hit on social media.
The India Pale Ale can be picked up in packs of 4 for $17.
As part of the announcement, the company Instagram page had some fun.
Some of you may have gotten the Signs that this was coming today, but beer releases are like a pitcher’s arsenal, and you never really know what’s coming and when…unless, of course, you cheat.
Taking it a step further, the brewery mentions that the new beer is dry hopped with “2017 grams per barrel of galaxy and strata hops.”
Dodger fans, enjoy the burn.
